Game -1: Red Sox Close Out Spring Training In A Real Ballpark

(Sologub passes on that MLB.TV is having a free preview for today's game)

Look at that number. 

Look at the date.

Look at where the Red Sox are.

Opening Day, at least for us, is just two days away. They will seem like some of the longest days of our lives if memory serves.

But perhaps a spring training game in an honest-to-God major league park will help make it go by a bit quicker. With the opening day lineup, no less.

1. Jacoby Ellsbury, CF

2. Dustin Pedroia, 2B

3. Carl Crawford, LF

4. Adrian Gonzalez, 1B

5. Kevin Youkilis, 3B

6. David Ortiz, DH

7. J.D. Drew, RF

8. Jarrod Saltalamacchia, C

9. Marco Scutaro, SS

Should I celebrate or decry the fact that Kevin Youkilis is our fifth hitter? On the one hand, he should be number three or four. On the other hand, Kevin Youkilis is our number five hitter.

Josh Beckett, whose stats you should totally go predict, will take the mound as the Texan returns home.

Go Sox! Both today, and Friday.
